It's A Bird, It's A Plane, It's Super Minnie!

That's right, I am dressing up as Super Minnie for the Superhero 5k race in London, England on May 19th at Regents Park.  Because this is a superhero run and costumes are provided, I decided it would be more fun to bring my own and dress as my favorite mouse!

Minnie can be a super hero too, especially with a fancy cape with her own logo.  So without further ado, I present my costume/racing outfit for my first international race!
Brooks Ravennas spray painted and bows added!

So what do you think?  Ever thought about tailoring a Disney character to suit a race theme?

  3. You are so creative Pam! Your costume is adorable. I had to read the one caption twice just to make sure I read that correctly, You spray painted your shoes??? Was this specifically for this race? Were they old shoes? I don't know if I'd have the guts to do that but they look great.
    GOOD LUCK in your first International Race! -M

    1. Yes, I spray painted an old pair of shoes. I will leave them in Paris when traveling back home. It is easy to paint the shoes, but honestly, the socks then take on a new color!

    1. Thanks Kristina, it is fun putting together a costume, but it did limit what clothing I could bring for the rest of the trip! Our group of four all agree on carryon bags only!
